Spencer Davis Group: Gimme Some Lovin'



Well my temperature is rising got my feet on the floor
Crazy people rocking 'cause they want to go more
Let me in baby I don't know what you got
But you better take it easy 'cause this place is hot

And I'm so glad you made it, so glad you made it
You got to gimme some lovin', gimme gimme some lovin'
Gimme some lovin', gimme gimme some lovin'
Gimme some lovin', every day.

Well I feel so good, everybody's getting high
You better take it easy 'cause the place is on fire
Been a hard day and I don't know what to do
We made it baby, and it happened to you

And I'm so glad you made it, so glad you made it
You got to gimme some lovin', gimme gimme some lovin'
Gimme some lovin', gimme gimme some lovin'
Gimme some lovin', every day.

Well I feel so good, everybody's getting high
You better take it easy 'cause the place is on fire
Been a hard day nothing went too good
Now I'm gonna relax just like everybody should.

"Gimme Some Lovin'" is a song written by Steve Winwood, Spencer Davis and Muff Winwood, although solely credited to "Stevie Winwood" on the UK single label, and originally performed by The Spencer Davis Group. The basic riff of the song was borrowed from the Homer Banks song "(Ain't That) A Lot of Love", written by Banks and Willie Dean "Deanie" Parker. "Gimme Some Lovin'" was a UK #2 in the Autumn of 1966 and a US #7. The song is ranked #247 on the Rolling Stone magazine's list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

my blog: Plagiarism in Rock Music: What? Led Zeppelin? - Jul 14/2013
Led Zeppelin's song "Dazed and Confused" was derived from a 1967 Jake Holmes song of the same name, which had been performed by Jimmy Page when he was with The Yardbirds. In June 2010, Holmes filed a lawsuit against the guitarist for copyright infringement in a United States District Court, claiming Page knowingly copied his work. The case was dismissed with prejudice in January 2012 following a stipulation filed by both parties. The 2012 Led Zeppelin release Celebration Day credits the song to "Jimmy Page, inspired by Jake Holmes". - Wikipedia

This is hilarious. "Smoke on the Water", probably the most famous rock riff of all time, has been stolen (may have been stolen?) from a 1967 composition called Maria Quiet by Astrud Gilberto (Brazilian samba and bossa nova singer who did the original "The Girl from Ipanema") and Gil Evans (jazz pianist, arranger, composer and bandleader). Ha, ha. Ya gotta hear this!!!
